    Area Data

    Salt Spring Island
    Salt Spring Island is the largest, most populated (over 10,000 residents), and some might say most popular, of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is located between Vancouver Island and the Mainland in the Strait of Georgia alongside its neighbouring islands of Galiano, Pender, Saturna, Mayne and Prevost. The setting is West Coast Canadian; forested islands, wide meadows and beautiful landscapes surrounded by emerald ocean and wonderful vistas. It is the only Southern Gulf Island with a high school and a hospital.


    Salt Spring Island is 27 km (17 miles) long and 14 km (9 miles) wide (74 sq miles), with 133 km (83 miles) of shoreline. The island attracts visitors and prospective residents with its mild climate and annual sunshine in excess of 2,000 hours.


    Artists, farmers, chefs, mechanics, romantics, writers, retirees and dreamers have been drawn to its shores and have recognized it as one of the world's best places to stay. Renowned for its creativity, Salt Spring Island is known as one of North America's best small arts towns and, due to the high demand to live there and limited supply of land offerings, Salt Spring Island holds some of the most desired and priciest real estate on the entire west coast of North America. The famous Saturday Market displays a great cross-section of the high-quality arts and crafts from paintings to pottery, jewellery and clothing, weaving and woodworks.


    Mount Maxwell Provincial Park
    Mount Maxwell Provincial Park is a day-use only park with one of the highest points on Salt Spring Island called Baynes Peak, which offers amazing views of Vancouver Island, the surrounding Gulf Islands and the mainland of British Columbia. Mount Maxwell Provincial Park shares a common border with Mount Maxwell Ecological Reserve and Burgoyne Bay Provincial Park, which together create over 1,100 hectares of protected area stretching from mountain top to shoreline and across Burgoyne Bay to the slopes of Mount Bruce.


    Mount Maxwell Provincial Park is one of the largest protected areas in the Gulf Islands and includes a mosaic of habitats from estuary to Garry oak ecosystems. Old-growth Douglas fir forest and cliffs serve as important nesting areas for species at risk, including turkey vultures, peregrine falcons and several species of bat. The estuary has three species of salmon and Burgoyne Bay is home to eel-grass beds and seabird populations. Several threatened plant species are protected in the park, including scalepod, Gray’s desert parsley, California hedge parsley and elfin moss.


    Mount Maxwell Provincial Park offers a number of walking and hiking opportunities with spectacular views. Approximately 6 km of maintained trails all start at the parking lot and range from easy strolls to more demanding hikes. Trails to the north and east travel through wooded areas of old-growth and second-growth Douglas fir. The trail to the west follows along the ridge of Mount Maxwell and links up with the park entrance road approximately 2 km from the parking lot.
